  1. In group A, I would rather have expected the Elite referee in Montenegro and the First Group referee in England.

    Turpin and Kabakov again without a match (like in the play-offs) - maybe there is something wrong (e.g. failed test)?

    1. Skomina was appointed in CL play off and already has 2 matches in EURO qualifiers. I dont see why would Skomina had to be appointed every time??
      Problem with Turpin, Kabakov and Kovacs is that they were not appointed for a single match in the last two months and we do not know the reason. For Kralovec and Kuipers we knew they were/are injured.
      Out of all referees that were not appointed in CL an EL qualifiers, Gestranius was now appointed in EL QF.

    2. Kovacs did 2 EURO qualifiers but no EL or CL play off. Turpin and Kabakov only 1 EURO qualifier and no EL or CL play off

  6. The second video start to watch from 4.40. Think clear penalty was missed

    1. Thanks for the videos, the first one didn't work in my country but I found the incident: 2-2 goal in 79' was indeed scored by handball, to be annulled. Difficult for referee and also AR.
      The penalty should have been given as well, looking at defender's movement.

  7. Zwayer seemed to have a difficult match with 2 penalties and YC to Coach after a goal that followed after a possible foul. Does anyone have more information?

    1. Unfortunately I only watched 1st half, which was not challenging at all for Zwayer.

  8. I give my impressions of three further matches that I watched during this international break; I did not take notes so perhaps I missed sth, but perhaps my impressions are partly useful.

    Starting in reverse chronological order, I spent yesterday evening watching the game in Elbasan handled by Ivan Kružliak. In general, no problems for the Slovakian, not so much to say about the refereeing. My thoughts on him were ambivalent, he showed some good prevention but also took some 'surprising' decisions. I know that such games that have some ex ante potential to 'kick-off' but are generally played fairly leave the referee in some kind of limbo as to how to handle the game - basically Kružliak sorted out cards when the game needed it. Some decisions taken pointed rather to a lack of confidence, opposing the last time I saw him in Partizan - Beşiktaş game where he was really excellent (8,6 but for missed caution) - this confident, modern manager who's talks with players never sacrificed authority seemed to have gone. I think UEFA even considered him on CL KO level (remember decision taken to have VAR there was after they sent Batta to observer him in R5 of group matches as a 1st Cat.), but he did not show a good performance in Hoffenheim - Shakhtar. Perhaps I generalise but I got the feeling he did not really recover from that yet - a talent indeed, but not material for an eighteen-referees EURO next year.

    Yesterday evening I caught the Poland - Austria game handled by Viktor Kassai. I fully agree with david02's report that Hungarian handled the game well with one or the other mistakes - I would contend the statement that he "is back" though. I myself confidently declared this after his strong performance in the Burnley - Olympiakós game (then he made me look an idiot in Manchester, but besides that). One part of Kassai's game is "back", his feeling for when to and when not to whistle a foul, I would say he is one of Europe's strongest 'match-readers' - but I wonder whether this skill, which took him to WC Semifinal, CL Final, and two good performances from a EURO Final, ever left him; it doesn't help that in the meantime he took some really awful calls. What surely has left him from the referee of early-PLC era is his soft skills - one now has the impression of perpetually grumpy guy, who you would not wish to bump into on a Monday morning. I guess he retains his natural authority but I would even say it constitutes even some kind of paranoia that the players are trying to destroy him (of course, one NB1 player did exactly that to him). In the end his years at UEFA top are rather over - making good decisions he can stay in Elite, with mistakes he should be demoted to 1st Cat; if he retired tomorrow, he could be immensely satisfied with what he reached, now in the twilight of his career.

    Finally I watched the quite 'fun' Armenia - Bosnia–Herzegovina game handled by Benoît Bastien. In general he offered a good performance. I appreciate his approach, analogous to Anthony Taylor - but I think that the Englishman has an 'X-Factor' right now that Bastien lacks. UEFA like him too, you don't get those Schalke - Galatasaray and Olympiakós - Milan games for nothing, but making crucial mistakes in both those matches ostensibly ended his international season (though I wonder if like Proença in 2013 he asked himself not to be appointed). I am quite confident it will return, but I just missed a bigger determination than what I saw from him before. EURO 2020 should be out of the question, but incrementally improving his appointments should follow as in-form he a valuable referee for UEFA who can handle big matches. As you noticed, I didn't talk about THAT in-box situation, which I will do below.

    1. https://streamable.com/u32f8

      After much deliberation I present my view:

      * Džeko tries to win a penalty off the right leg of the defender (clues: ball he hits hard to do that, odd movement pattern, look at his left leg, ready to get tripped)

      * When trying to do that, his left leg actually does get hit by defender's left leg (you can see the change of movement, defender feels that contact, it's clear that he thinks he has fouled his opponent)

      -> So, as Džeko has played for the penalty, on a philosophical level, can we punish the standing leg tackle of the defender? This is the crucial question IMO.

      This a genuine grey area where observer should back either penalty or simulation with the correct explanation from the match officials.

      Expanding further, my take on this can be considered quite relativistic, but I believe that play on would be the best decision (with simulation being much more preferable than a penalty).

      Defender's left leg tackle is a typical standing-leg tackle, that should be punished with a YC. This is unnatural and manufactured situation by Džeko. BUT I see two crucial differences between this an typical standing leg tackle:

      1) Džeko's leg is in the air, so no danger for injury
      2) Such interpretations are to protect player's safety - as Džeko's leg is up (no danger), I don't believe that he should be protected by that when he tries everything just to get fouled.

      So, what happens is rather either off-the-ball careless foul (that is play-on) or normal footballing contact if we say that Džeko's leg is off the ground. So, while it is clearly the worst decision en praxis, I believe that PLAY ON is the correct decision in a objective reality.

      In the real world, though it is wrong, better to punish the simulation there than award a penalty (fair somehow, as Džeko is only interested to get fouled), that are only two options here in practice.

      And they had a few seconds to make a decision...

    2. IMO excellent decision by Bastien. Djeko clearly tries to deceive the referee by dragging his left foot towards the defender when he sees the challenge. Spot on decision.

      Delete
    3. Thank you, Mikael,for your analysis. I like Bastien, but I don't agree with this decision. IMO this is a penalty

      Delete
    4. Excessive "artistry" Dzeko, without which Bastien could make the right decision, in any case, he would be stumble, but it would be natural.

      Delete
    5. Great decision. Just like Lahoz some year ago with Manchester city. It would have been a penalty if the attacker didn't dive before the contact. Shameful attacker.

      Delete
    6. Very complex situation where the live perception is still of a dive rather than a penalty. The replays from different angles give different perceptions. It would be interesting to know how UEFA has assessed the incident.

  9. ITALY SERIE A APPOINTMENTS for 3rd MD
    BRESCIA - BOLOGNA ROCCHI IV: MASSIMI VAR: PICCININI
    FIORENTINA - JUVENTUS IRRATI IV: DI BELLO VAR: MAZZOLENI
    GENOA – ATALANTA FABBRI IV: PAIRETTO VAR: MARESCA
    H. VERONA – MILAN MANGANIELLO IV: DI MARTINO VAR: ORSATO
    INTER – UDINESE MARIANI IV: ABISSO VAR: GUIDA
    NAPOLI – SAMPDORIA LA PENNA IV: MARINI VAR: BANTI
    PARMA – CAGLIARI PASQUA IV: SERRA VAR: DOVERI
    ROMA – SASSUOLO CHIFFI IV: SACCHI VAR: GIACOMELLI
    SPAL – LAZIO CALVARESE IV: GHERSINI VAR: AURELIANO
    TORINO – LECCE GIUA IV: MARINELLI VAR: DI PAOLO

    Rocchi on sunday with a low profile match, while Orsato only as VAR; still out Massa and Valeri after the mistakes during 1st MD. Probably Orsato will be appointed in CL on Wednesday. Also Guida is appointed as VAR; debut in CL for him to celebrate his promotion in 1st class ? I guess too early IMO
